Beck and Stewart. The guitar work is amazing and Rod's voice goes so well with the song.

The Impressions for me. Never heard the song before though. It reminds me of this song by The Violinaires which was released a few years later:

I prefer Curtis´s solo version on his own album over any other version.

It was really cool when Prince started some of his aftershows during the Gold era with a brief version of this song....just the first few lines as an intro. I wish he had done a longer rendition.

Maybe Count the Days was inspired by this? But I´m just speculating here.

" I´d rather be a stank ass hoe because I´m not stupid. Oh my goodness! I got more drugs! I´m always funny dude...I´m hilarious! Are we gonna smoke?"
